      • Cliff: I knew Tina Turner when she was rollin' on the river!

        At the time of this episode, Tina Turner was at the height of a comeback that started with her album "Private Dancer" in 1985. In the process, she picked up a whole new legion of fans that were probably unaware of her tumultuous marriage to Ike Turner in the late 1960's. Ike and Tina had a huge hit with "Proud Mary" which included the line "Rollin' on the River."
